know, when barack obama first came into office, we gave away a lot of missile defense scheduled to go into europe because we wanted to please the russians. we wanted to hit the reset button and look where that's gotten it. it's gotten us nothing except we've delayed protections for ourselves and our allies. we have to do what's best for our defense and our allies' defense and do what ronald rean said. we should have peace through strength, not peace through weakness. peace through strength. lou: the north koreans have at least two missiles for launch, estimated to be, by all counts, and of course, yu're far better briefed on this than the people but by all accounts a range of at least 00 miles. how concerned are you that they will, indeed, be launched and what should be the u.s. response? >> well, fortunately, we do have some good theater missile defenses in place today, missile destroyers that we already had and we beefed that up. japanese had some with our help and they're deploying that and we have some inter continental ballistic missile interceptors, lou, in both california and a
from the c.i.a. into the defense department? >> no. there has been a proposal that's been reported that kind of over time, they're going to transfer the control of the program from the c.i.a. to the defense department. but what we believe is going to still be allowed is the c.i.a. will still have responsibility for finding what's called finding and fixing the enemy. so basically it is locating who the target is and then basically getting them into the cross hairs. but then the decision on actually firing the missile would be at the defense department. which is an important change but it also means the c.i.a. would retain a role. now, what we've also been told, this may be something that will take some time, possibly even a couple of years because the c.i.a. wants to retain control over drone strikes in pakistan which is where most of the drone strikes are happening. >> bill: do we know questions about the drones, i think it is a very troubling situation on so many levels but let's start with -- is this an act of war? >> well, that's -- it should be. >> bill: if so, then who makes t
.i.t. technologies cut across every sector of our economy and our national defense infrastructure. our relatively modest 20-year investment in nitr-d programs has contributed immeasurably to our economic and national security by enabling innovation and job creation in the n.i.t. and providing american students with the skills to fill these jobs. let's re-authorize this program today and ensure that it remains strong. i want to thank my friend, mrs. lummis, for reintroducing a bipartisan bill once again in this congress and i also would like to thank my staff and in sokolo for their hard work on this bill and i urge my colleagues to support h.r. 967 and reserve the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlewoman reserves, the gentleman from texas is recognized. mr. smith: i yield five minutes to mrs. lummis the sponsor of this legislation and who chairs the subcommittee of the science, space and technology committee. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlewoman from wyoming is recognized for five minutes. mrs. lummis: thank you, mr. speaker. i want to start by thanking chairman smith and
kind of defense, if any, do you want to put forward. whatever the defense attorney does, people will blame him for his client's activities, but fair trial requires a zealous defense. this case has to be tried in federal court, because this is an american citizen, this is a domestic crime committed right in the middle of boston. there's no option other than regular ordinary criminal trial. >> remember, the politics have already begun to infect this process. lindsey graham, the senator from south carolina, tweeted this afternoon before there was an arrest, i hope they don't give him miranda warnings. i hope they just interrogate him because it's too important for the legal system. lindsey graham will not be the only person in the united states thinking that. >> i'm hearing on that very point that he has not been given his miranda rights. >> the supreme court of the united states said a few years ago that he doesn't have to be given his miranda warnings as long as they don't use any confession against him in his own criminal trial, they can interrogate him, they can even use extrem
been a criminal defense attorney in michigan since 1984. i am very upset by the guy who called in and said that this guy should only get three to five years. as a defense attorney, it is hard for me to say this, he should be given life without parole and die in prison. host: talk to me about this item in this morning's "the new york a federalere they say official -- caller: i do not agree with that. everyone should be given their miranda rights. host: if he is not given his miranda rights then they cannot use anything he talks to them about in a trial should this case goes to trial. caller: that is correct. said everybody should be given their rights. even the people in gitmo. that is how america works. talkedhe president about the court procedure that will be following this arrest of dzokhar tsarnaev. [video clip] >> that american spirit means staying true to the unity that makes us strong. blogs,ng tweets and there is a temptation to latch on to any bit of information and sometimes jump to conclusions. when a tragedy like this happens, when public safety is at risk and the st
? >> well, this is a pretty easy call. certainly this defense lawyer is going to say, stop talking. there is nothing to be gained at this point, particularly since his cooperation may be the only negotiating leverage he has to avoid a death penalty. so certainly there will be two thoughts on the mind of his defense attorney. one is silence from his client, and the second is delay. delay things as long as possible. the country, the commonwealth of massachusetts, boston, everybody is hugely exercised about this right now, but time has a way of making people somewhat less angry, increasing the chances perhaps for a plea bargain or some sort of other resolution to the case. >> so all of that talk of some sort of public safety exception before you give him his miranda rights, all that talk of naming him as an enemy combatant, all of that is moot right now. they've gone forward with the official proceedings. >> well, they may have used the public safety exception, and apparently they were using it to question him, and he responded in some way given his medical condition. but certainly no
and have good defensive effect. i don't think this is applicable. there are people who want to make the argument but a .12-game shotgun. 2,000 weapons available for people without assault weapon. >> chris: we are running out of time so i won't give you a chance to answer that question, congressman king but i'll give you a chance to answer another question. this has spilled? debate on immigration reform. grassley, the senator from iowa says before we reform the system we have to focus more on who we let in the country. your response? >> well, first, i don't think it should have severe impact on the immigration debate. we should focus whether it should be refined and if people are coming from a country that has terrorist background. strong terrorist element that that country there should be extra vetting from that country. i'm grandson of immigrants. i have some concern with security aspect of immigration reform i don't think we should use it as an excuse to stop the debate. i do believe if someone is coming from country, which has strong al-qaeda any other type of terrorist element i
a 12-gauge shotgun and have a good defensive effect. and there's the element of surprise. you've got police all over the place in watertown, so i don't really think that this is applicable. i think there are people that want to make this argument, but 12-gauge shotgun, there are many weapons, 2,000-plus weapons that are available to people for choice without an assault weapon. >> we're running out of time. so i'm not going to give you a chance to answer that question, congressman king. i'll give you a chance to answer the other question. this has also spilled into the debate over immigration reform. some conservatives like charles grassley, senator from iowa, are saying, before we reform the system, we ought to focus more on who we let into this country. your response? >> first of all, i don't think it should have a severe impact on the immigration debate. i do think it should focus on whether or not it should be refined, and if people are coming from a country which has terrorist background, if there's a strong terrorist element in that country, there should be extra vetting for peo
game. >> defense secretary chuck hagel spoke about the bombings today while on a flight to israel saying, the attack was criminal and every region of the world is not safe from these terrible acts. >> i have not seen any intelligence that would make such a link, but as you know, all of the facts are not in. all of the dynamics and intelligence is not complete and until we know that, until we get more pieces, we won't be able to answer some of those questions. >> hagel also said the obama administration doesn't have enough information yet to decide whether the surviving 19-year-old tsarnaev brother should be sent to the guantanamo bay prison for terror suspects. >>> we're learning much, much more about the suspects now from the russian republic of dagestan where their father now lives. now cnn can exclusively reveal alleged boston bomber tamerlan tsarnaev, the older brother, had video of a jihadist on his youtube channel. let's get to nick paton walsh now, he joins us by phone from dagestan. so nick, what do you know about this video? i just spoke with the police commissioner here
is investors chasing the most defensive areas, when you see coca-cola and general mills and these great companies and that's the leadership area of the market, that doesn't express global growth. we want to show those, the energy names and that's real in this country and that's not going to get the respect. the housing recovery is real and it's not going to get that respect and we need to show that is the future of the economy and to do that, the economy will stand on its own two feet and otherwise it will be renters of stocks and not buyers of stocks and they'll believe that the fed is propping up the market and the market can't stand on its own two feet. what should we do? what is an investor to do now? sure, again, the volatile that's crept out of the market can be an opportunity for investors and if we look at what's been left behind in this rally and we talk about something like energy. if you believe the global growth story is real and some of the industrial names that are down in sympathy with gold and that's where an opportunity lies and if you look at the miners and the industr
. but it was the crazy late 60s, early 70s when all of these young women were arming themselves for self-defense and they were sure the revolution was around the corner. >> michael: of course. i like that you are talking about that time in the united states, and we all have a picture of what it was like earlier, and how did it go from the 60s, peaceful it is inns, and then the '70s black power and militant feed. how did that happen? >> i think what happened with the civil rights movement was people were into that kind of protesting, and that was a very effective way to make great television, but what were the next steps? when change is always slow what were the next steps? so the next generation wanted to be more proactive. and i think what comes out of california along the lines of police harassment and brutality, the racial profiling is the panthers, and they decide to have guns -- which were legal to have, to defend their rights and communities, and again that is something that catapulted into this context of young people wants to change the world and make at it more just
intelligence and it should become an integral part of our civil defense. do you think you have to acknowledge that and in a sense, activate that in some form better from capitol hill? are we spending our resources in this country in the right place? >> i think we have to do more to encourage as has been done in new york, if they see something, say something and also urge and encourage the local community to speak out whenever they see anything that's out of the ordinary, even if it involves people of their own ethnic group and their own religion and their own persuasion. if they see something report it because it will come out of these local communities. >> i think there should be more direction on that. i think if more funding is necessary, absolutely, and they worry too much about political correctness and we have to get the message out and we also, though, i think, have to be telling local police and if we have to provide more funding at the federal level for them to build up their own intelligence unit and not just rely on the federal government and that's at the federal level. >> congres
of defense chuck hagel has not seen evidence to link the bombings to terror groups. scrutiny turns to the fbi who reportedly questioned the older brother tamerlan in 2011 at the request of a foreign government. this is so interesting. of russia. the fbi told the a.p. despite interviewing him and relatives they did not find any activity. the agency dropped the ball. richard, i wonder if there is going to be a lot of questions and maybe even hearings out of this or what comes to mind just knowing those basic facts? >> there probably will be hearings of the fbi whether it learned more or could have done more. critics say that is monday morning quarterbacking. it ought to be about what we were talking about, what can we do to prevent or identify young people who are radicalized and how did we respond and how what did we learn about lockdowns. as the military would say it ought not to just focus on fbi. it's much bigger and much broader. we have to learn a lot from this. the reason is this is not a one off. this type of low, if you will, granular terrorism, a couple of people and not talking about
, i should note, an american citizen. with more, robert shock is a criminal defense attorney and quiche -- heaven is a federal prosecutor. igate to see both of you. bob, a lot of people are calling for the death penalty. we are far away from that decision. but in federal court, does it matter where the case takes place -- in massachusetts or elsewhere? >> no, absolutely not. if the charges are lodged of using a weapons of mass destruction to murder american citizens, they can seek the death punishment. it's up to the department of justice. but boston or any other venue would be able to do that. >> jamie: you can guess how the jury pool will feel about this? >> right. that's all over the country, not just boston. this is a very serious case, especially whenw what our country has been through in the. >> jamie: you both agree it should be in a civilian court t. seems to be that's the direction it's going, not a military tribunal. he may not be in a condition to be asked any questions. but is anything off limits? >> at this point, they for using the public safety exception. but i
was supposedly brainwashed by his older brother. a criminal defense attorney could use that argument to try to save him from the death penalty? >> absolutely. there are a number of factors that the defense will use. he's only 19 years old. the supreme court has said that no one under 18 can even be considered for the death penalty. so his youth is one reason. the other point as you mentioned is, what was the influence? was he brain wauwashbrainwashed? was he coerced by his older brother? the other factor is what role he actually played, how the division of labor took place. we don't know that at this point. if he was very much the minor player, that will be another factor. that's something that's going to play out over a number of months. >> he's got to get healthy presumably before anything significant can be done. if he's communicating right now, he's not been read his miranda rights, but he's writing answers to questions. what do you make of that from the legal perspective, that he's at least giving some answers to the fbi? >> that suggests his arraignment will be held soon. he can't be
of this as a set of multi layer defenses. and because we have an attack like this does not mean that we are not safe. it means that we are going to live for the foreseeable future with -- what we should take from this is we have to defend against these things, reduce the likelihood of the big, big scale attacks, and then be really resilient. and we've heard that from first responders and bystanders about how they're not going to let this affect their lives. this is a tragedy, but we shouldn't take this as the system has failed, we're not safer -- we are. but things are going to get through and we're going to have tragedies like we will today. >> and one of the only ways that we can help frustrate the aims of people who do things like this is to show how resilient we are. thank you very much. it's good to have you here. >> thank you, rachel. >> i want to tell you that the fbi has set up a phone number for anybody to call request information on today's attack. they are describing their call for toips in terms of people who may know anything about what happened in boston today in terms of
larry flynt kissing babies. >> michael: you certainly don't. >> but there was a long time defense attorney in los angeles. his ballot was marijuana attorney. that was ground breaking and legitimized the issue of medical and recreational marijuana, and we see where we are today. >> michael: and didn't he run against henry waxman. >> yeah, for a very short time. >> michael: where is gray davis now? >> we sat down with gray for two hours, and it was -- i hate to say this, not a lot of news was made there. he is very reticent to talk about this. he is not trying to defend himself. he is very hesitant to talk about this. >> michael: yeah. >> he did say it was an unscheduled election, and from what we learned is it did change a lot of things that he did. he had to pander to his base. and whether it be a democrat or republican, it does change the dynamic of who is governing. >> michael: i would say the lesson is not to just hold the middle. >> yeah, go somewhere. >> michael: joe garofoli of "the san francisco chronicle" thanks so much for being here. up next, brett ehrli
the border, but the second line of defense is controlling the jobs. 40% of the people here illegally never came across the border. they came to a visa system. one of the triggers is to get an injury and exit running so we know when it expires. the >>> yes. >> the 19 hijackers were all students here on visas. that is correct. there are a number of ways that would beackers revealed under the bill. >> now we have a robust guest worker program providing legal labor to workers who cannot find this. the combination of systems worked in concert, increasing border security their technology and manpower, controlling at a national level. providing access to labor was trying to achieve border security. interwoven system. absolutely. you said that the older brother, at the suspect was killed, when he left to go back to russia in 2012 the system picked up his departure but did not pick up him coming back. is that correct? >> that is my understanding. >> the text alone was more than one year old. >> after having taught to the fbi, they tell me they had no knowledge of them coming back. the name was miss
. >> this lieutenant general runs the defense department's counteri.e.d. operations and last year said, quote, we're dreaming if we think this threat will leave us after the wars in afghanistan. since 2011 there have been more than 10,000 i.e.d. attacks in over a hundred countries. >> 40 different networks were responsible. in the future it is estimated home made bombs will become the weapon of choice in the u.s. >> i.e.d.s are the biggest single threat we have to our security in the nation. >> he ran the homeland security department bomb prevention unit. >> the capacity to construct and build an i.e.d. is really very small in terms of the level of engineering or technical background and the materials are widely available. >> reporter: a research center at the university of maryland says there have been 44 i.e.d. attacks in the u.s. since 2001. in 2011 a white supremacists crafted one with layers of shrapnel and rat poison, a nasty bomb which would have caused those who survived to bleed to death. his target? a parade marking the martin luther king holiday in spokane, washington. luckily the bomb
disarmament. the reaganites in the defense department were horrified by this and put a stop to it but reagan didn't go all the way with reaganism when he had a chance to end the cold war, especially the nuclear threats. so it's a hard-core republican belief. if you remember the pup pup prime -- republican primaries of 2012, it was not that long ago there were eight or ten republican candidates in simi valley for a debate at the reagan library and every one of them said reagan set the example how maring be strong, reagan did with the soviet union and we should do it today in iran, we should do it -- we were right toy trite in iraq. america should use its power to achieve its spend destroy its enemies. i worked in the cold war and in the middle east. you have 29% of the american people agree with that today. >> richard, do you want to say something? you're leaning forward. >> no. >> okay. we want to take questions from the audience if anybody has a question, and i think there's a microphone somewhere that someone is going to bring up. why don't we start right up here on the aisle, blue shirt.
response to reduce the casualties. we have to think of this as a set of multilayered defenses. and because we have an attack on like this, does not mean that we're not safe. it means that we are going to live for the foreseeable future with a threat of terrorism. whether it is domestic or international or something in between. and we can't take from this that we're not safe. what we should take from this is we have to defend against these things. reduce the likelihood of the big, big-scale attacks. and then be really resilient. and we've heard that from people, first responders and bystanders about how they're not going to let them affect their lives. this is a tragedy. but we shouldn't take this as the system has failed, we're not safer. we are. but things are still going to get through and we're going to have tragedies like twe saw today. >> one of the things, one of the only ways we as civilians can help frustrate the aims of people who do things like this is to show how resilient we are and this won't change our lives in fundamental ways. that we'll press on. michael leiter, former dir
and the defense intelligence agency to try to be sure that these two did not have others that they were working with. that this, you know, is truly over. we just don't know that yet. >> and we will go straight to the president the minute we see him approach the podium. pierre thomas, you're listening? >> reporter: diane, one of the things that struck me about the press conference is, it reminded us of the sheer violence we saw this week. the bombing. mangled people. the police chief tonight talked about 200 rounds being fired in the exchange with the suspects last night. bombs being thrown, homemade grenades. and he used a word that we don't often hear, we've been hearing too often of late, that the m.i.t. police officer was assassinated. i think we first reported today that they walked up on that security officer, that police officer, fired on him and executed him in his car. >> and, again, the police said they could detect his presence. the suspect's presence from those helicopters, presumably? >> they can do that. the extraordinary thing, and you mentioned it earlier, diane, that homeowner w
security homeland defense and foreign operations committee. what are you hearing about the investigation, congressman? >> well, we're hearing that the fbi is in the lead i think as you already know and the president staying up to date on all of this but we know that we have every single agency at the federal, state and local level coordinating well and working under the direction. they're looking for every single clue they can and at the same time, you know, coming the rescue and help and aid to the extent they can of the people impacted by this. so i think you are going to find it's probably a very concerted and well coordinated effort. may take sometime to get to the bottom of things but i believe that we will. >> what are the questions you want more answered when you get your briefing today and understanding that, you know, we are less than 24 hours in to this? >> i first want to know that everything that can be done is done for the people injured and families. i believe that that's the case. i know that you had an interview with the doctors at one of the hospitals and i think the res
. >> gregg: you can hear the defense lawyers say that he was really brainwashed by his older brother. he was manipulated. he was emotionally and mentally easily and unduly influenced? >> no juror is going to buy it. when they look at what he has done, whether he was brainwashed many jurors will listen to this with such atrocity and such incredible damage to the million people that basically were in shutdown for 24 hours, it's ridiculous. >> it's all true but it may not be that easy during the phase of the case. jury will look at the fact this is a 19-year-old kid. we don't know what his mental capabilities was at the time. coercion aspect of it, mercedes is probably right, but i do think there is a chance he may be forgiven. >> he a college student. he is 19 years old, he is not a child. >> gregg: timothy mcveigh, they had to change the venue. do you expect a change of venue because similarly, bostonians were traumatized by it? >> i think they will try to. i don't think it will be emotional but i think it will be >> the whole country was so engaged. >> gregg: and the state could prosecut
hagel secretary of defense calls what happened here in boston a cruel act of terror. it's a story we'll stay on here at the fox news channel as we mentioned earlier, a lot of reports that have gone out late yesterday into the night last night were said to be untrue today, so as we move with patience through this story we'll bring it to you the best way we can, with speed and also with accuracy as we go. i'm bill hemmer live in boston. jaime good to be with you today back there in new york as well. jaime: bill, you will be back in boston for us tomorrow. we appreciate it. we pray for not only the victims and their families but we pray for answers. we will see you again, but next "happening now" and it starts right now. >> it's important to clarify that two and only two explosive devices were found
officials after the 9/11 attack approved actions for cia and defense personnel based upon legal guidance that has since been repudiated. the most important decision may have been to declare the geneva convention did not apply to al-qaeda and taliban captives in afghanistan or guantanamo. the administration never specified what rules would apply instead. the task force believes that u.s. defense intelligence professionals and service members in harm's way need absolutely clear orders on the treatment of detainees, requiring at a minimum compliance with common article iii of the geneva convention. this was not done. civilian leaders and military commanders have an affirmative responsibility to insure that their subordinates comply with the laws of war. president obama has committed to observe the geneva conventions through an executive order, but a future president could change it by the stroke of a pen. congress, one of our recommendations, needs to work with the administration to strengthen the torture statute, the war crimes exact the uniform code of military justice to remove loopholes
